Our drive to redress the gender imbalance that exists in oncology is international.

The first step is to build awareness of this imbalance. We do this by conducting research into gender gap in career development, monitoring the progression of female oncologists into positions of leadership, and disseminating our findings across countries and regions.

We draw upon the knowledge and skills of women and men operating in oncology to rebalance the representation of women in the field.
